If you have completed a draft of your manuscript, I can offer detailed feedback and suggestions for helping your book reach its highest potential. First we'll meet, and I'll ask you questions about your intentions for the work — the audience, the mood, the message, the content, the style. I believe that grappling with these questions is a central part of the revision process, and that my role is to be a gentle interrogator. Based on your answers, I'll go through your manuscript on my own time and provide specific, tailored suggestions for how to meet your goals and intentions, on both the macro- and micro-scales: the overall form and flow of the work, and the roles of each individual word.
For my initial reading of a manuscript and taking brief notes on it, I charge a fixed fee of $25/hr. After this, I will work with you to arrive at a one-time fee for the entire project that suits your budget, your goals, and the needs of the manuscript.
Consulting & Mentoring
If you have a project, poem, or writing practice which you're in the process of developing, I'd love to help you. We can have regular live 1-1 workshopping or mentoring sessions with me via video chat or telephone, or we can have an asynchronous email correspondence conversation about your work.
For consulting and mentoring, I charge a sliding scale fee of $75–$25/hr.
I also always hold a few free spots for those who do not have any extra resources. Please do reach out; if those spots are full I can put you on a wait list.
For any of my services, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I accept Venmo, Paypal, or payment by check.
